New Carbonfree®Business Partner Pacifica Beauty is a 100% vegan, cruelty-free natural beauty company committed to creating effective products that meet the highest beauty standards, while using natural ingredients and focusing on sustainable packaging and practices. Guided by compassion, the team at Pacifica treats women, animals and the planet with love and respect.
To enhance this commitment, Pacifica recently calculated its estimated annual operating emissions, including office energy usage, business travel, employee community and paper usage. In order to neutralize the negative impact of its annual emissions, Pacifica made a donation to Carbonfund.org to support reforestation and forest preservation projects around the world.
“Our company was founded with a belief that if compassion is our number one business practice, we have to be good stewards of the earth,” explains Brook Harvey-Taylor, President of Pacifica. “We chose to work with Carbonfund.org as they are one of the most respected carbon partners in the industry. They also make the process of becoming carbon neutral simple, clear and direct.”
Pacifica’s commitment to 100% vegan products also demonstrates a commitment to operating more sustainably. The company focuses on using recyclable materials in all packaging as well as natural ingredients in their products. These measures and their use of carbon offsets and clean energy to neutralize operating emissions, and to promote educational efforts to fight climate change, set Pacifica apart as a leader in the sustainable beauty products business.
Storing your wedding gown, vintage clothing, family heirlooms or military uniforms became more environmentally sustainable when Foster-Stephens joined the Carbonfree ® Business Partnership program last fall.
Foster-Stephens of Elk Grove Village, IL has been producing storage solutions including archival boxes, muslin garment bags and reusable/recyclable garment bags to preserve and protect wedding gowns and other family treasures since 1936. Their product line includes many styles and sizes of archival protection boxes and bags to anyone interested in preserving textiles and family heirlooms: dry cleaners, museums, designers, costume archivists, military personnel and individuals interested in preserving their heritage.
To improve their own operational sustainability and neutralize operational emissions, Foster-Stephens supports Carbonfund.org’s reforestation projects around the world that help to sequester carbon dioxide and reduce carbon emissions. They also maintain recycling programs in their office and warehouse, and select products made from recyclable materials.
"We are proud of our ongoing efforts to reduce our carbon footprint,” states Nancy L. Jones, President of Foster-Stephens. “Our partnership with Carbonfund.org allows us to maintain our commitment to providing the best products for protecting textiles for future generations while offsetting the carbon emissions required to provide these products."
Historical preservation is important, but it should be accomplished with minimal impact on our environment’s future. Foster-Stephens is helping to achieve this goal by carefully selecting environmentally-responsible preservation packaging products and mitigating its own business emissions in partnership with Carbonfund.org.
